An air conditioning option you may not have contemplated, or even heard of, is a mini-split system. Mini-split systems have been prominent in Europe and Asia for quite some time and are becoming increasingly popular in the United States. Similar to a forced central air conditioner they have an outdoor and indoor unit, and sometimes with various indoor units.
With the mini-split model of air conditioning you are able to create individual zones in your home, with each zone having its own thermostat. This allows you to only cool the areas of your home that are not empty. Many models are able to have four simplified zones attached to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will depend on how much cooling is needed and how tightly the room is insulated.
Mini-split systems are a reliable fix to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, not loud and help you create a more tolerant home environment. Not to mention, the economical levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have better control of your home’s comfort while also being cautious of your monthly energy costs.
Mini-splits are great options for new home additions especially sun rooms. They aren’t noisy like a window unit because, just like a central air conditioner system, the condensing unit isn’t inside. They also have sleek, current designs and don’t block out light from windows like a window unit. There are many various installation options as well, including the ability to have the indoor unit put in a ceiling.
